He Who Balances

I've always been fond of Thoth. And who wouldn't since he is the Egyptian God of such cool things as writing, science, magic, librarians and other things near and dear to my head. I've always liked how Thoth is shown not as a classic Sacred Ibis but as an bluish green colour, ie the colour of magic in Egypt. It adds a nice touch. There are things I'm not too happy about in this one and things I like a lot. Pretty typical:) The background carving is from a photo that we took on our trip to Eygpt. Nice to use some of the photos finally! The jewelry is all authentic and the scroll is from the Book of the Dead.

I for think this is a very good image. I especially like the texture and colour of his feathers; really eye catching.

Awesome. Someone directed me to your page when I shared a meme that used your picture. I did not steal your image, just found it on facebook…

This is really good! Lately I've been really interested in the Egyptian gods and Thoth is my favorite! Keep up the good work!

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges [link] (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)
As long as you don't take my signaure, give me credit and link, I'm fine with it.

The blue head was a nice touch - I'm trying to imagine him with a white head, and it just wouldn't look right. The blue just brings your attention to him.

SOMEHOW, this most amazing picture was not already in my favorites folder! I corrected that oversight immediately.
